New Facade for the "Art House Project" in Eisenstadt
The Art House Project in Eisenstadt is getting a new facade! In July four artists decorated the wonderful Art House at the centre of Eisenstadt. This huge painting is my contribution to that project!
The work "La nueva semántica guatemalteca" (The new semantics of Guatemala) by Gustavo Juárez was chosen as finalist and participant at the charity auction in the latin-america-wide competition of contemporary art "Juannio". Artists of 15 countries participated with more than 200 works.
This work talks about the systemic corruption in Guatemala. Last year the president was "impeached" by peaceful protesters in Guatemala. It is called "la linea" (the line) which was the name of the corruption network that included (among many others) the president, vice president, various ministers and high representatives of different branches of the national bureaucracy. Therefore, a "line" is no longer a "sequence of points on a paper", but synonym for the biggest corruption scandal in the history of Guatemala.
